Cynthia A. Clement: Simply the Best!
Thursday, May 19th, 2016

ccIDABoxSetLowResWhat image does the word winner conjure up for you?

Champion? Hero? Conqueror?

For me, it represents reader satisfaction.

To win an award for writing means that readers have enjoyed and applauded the story that has been woven for them. As an author, there is no greater reward than knowing that your work has given joy and pleasure to another. With fiction, we are able to escape to worlds and eras that can transform us. Truths can be disguised as entertainment, lessons can be learned, and our souls refreshed. For a writer to be applauded for their work signifies that they have succeeded in conveying the reader to a better place, if only for the few hours it takes to read their novel.

Simply the Best is a collection of International Digital Award Winning Romances

Six First Place authors of the International Digital Awards, have combined their winning novels together in a boxed set priced at $0.99. This is an opportunity to read the stories that others have found exceptional. This multi-genre set spans different times and worlds. There is historical, contemporary, suspense, science fiction, and young adult combined in one set.
